When pheasant hunting, you have about 1 to 3 seconds to get that shot off if bird flushes in decent range. No time to be having a hand in your pocket or removing a mitten. Need a heated stock on the gun.

In my other life I was a lineman. There was no problem with cold feet with the boots that are available but we often used hand warmers inside the one finger mitts. The fingers would be toasty but could still work. Lineman can't wear thick bulky gloves.

Take a look at shooters mitts and add hand warmers.
I have the same trouble as you with cold feet , hands.
Feet are the worse.

Don't know if they still make them but I used to use what they called Hotfingers from Wells Lamont back when I did a lot of skiing. Kept my hands warm most all day.

Tractor vet, you are describing a blood circulation issue, there is likely nothing wrong with any of the gloves. My experience is similair to yours. I wear cloth gloves and I use a walk behind snowblower. With my hands grasping the control levers circulation to my finger tips stops, by the time I have finished my fingers are burning cold. I get in and take off my gloves and after several minutes my fingers warm up and I'm good to go. Tight gloves make it worse, leather gloves seem to tighten when you grasp something and mitts don't work well on the controls. I used to wear the skimpiest cloth gloves inside my snowmobile mitts and I could last all afternoon grasping the controls of the machine, they were loose fitting in both cases. This winter I have had cold fingers more often and circulation to the fingers is the culprit.

I froze my hands bad when younger, now they are always cold, agree on the mittens.

When I was a kid, I was told " If your toes are cold, put on a hat". I didn't believe it then, but I do now. Your body can only produce a certain amount of heat. Your brain priorititizes the parts of your body to keep warm. It's priorities are the brain itself, then the heart and the internal organs. Last are fingers, toes, ears and nose. Not to say that circulation, etc. aren't also factors

When I worked the dock in the winter I used the thin brown jersey gloves inside the old yellow or green fuzzy chore gloves. A guy I worked with some swore by mittens. When it was SUPER cold I used glove liners or meat cutter's cotton gloves inside them. Until it stayed below zero all day the old 2 buckle overshoes were enuf but when it really got ugly I went to the old insulated "Moon Boots." gm

I don't remember my hands being that cold in the military. That was a wool glove with a leather glove on top . Two pairs on the hands at once. I never shot the rifle with gloves.

I have developed Neuropathy in my feet in the last two years so I now wear -50 degree moon boots when outside but still have to be careful as my feet are always numb anyway.

Have to take blood thinner. A true pain in the rump. In cold or hot weather your feet sweat. This is what skiers and other cold weather folk do. Before you go out take a can of Arrid XX extra dry antipersperant and hose your feet down top and bottom. You want to put on enough so you can almost skate across the carpet. Your feet cannot sweat. They will not get cold and clammy. Just not super cold. I have been doing it for years. Give it a try cause it really works.

As the last thing you do, before putting on your gloves, put some of this on a little heavier than you would a lotion.

When doing chores between buildings, I sometimes keep my gloves off. Been below zero since Friday.

Available at most farm stores...

Yeah, but you were 18 at the time. Bet you're not 18 anymore.
